The CACC Makerspace is the annual artistic awareness programme dedicated to children in preschool and elementary school ; it is based on a principle of collaboration with the Art Centre’s artist in residence. The CACC encourages students to meet the artist, to share their perspective on the world, and to elaborate a collective work together over the course of eight hours of in-school workshops. By privileging artistic experimentation, this programme allows young people to explore the variety of pathways associated with exhibition work.
The CACC Makerspace, organized around a different artist each year, combines pedagogical workshops and the Centre’s main programming. The workshops can take place during a given exhibition, leading up to it, or following it. Exhibition visits and artist meet-and-greets supplement the practical workshops.
For the 2021–2022 season, Tony Regazzoni is the central artist of the programme.
Three associate artists are invited to conduct the classroom workshops.
